iBlog is personally special to me as last year's iBlog was my first major blogger event in terms of number of participants. I was also part of the volunteer group then as this is a non-profit summit/conference for bloggers supported by Ms. Janette Toral and the UP Internet Society among others. Thank you to the event sponsors for helping as well.
